SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

spiral balances

A home owner from Providence RI says:
I have a sash that weights 22 lbs. I want to replace the 3/8" spiral balances. The existing ones don't have a colored tip on them. I am assuming that I should replace them with the green tip balances. Do you think that is right?

Well, it would depend on the length of your tube and the Series you're considering. We have a chart on each spiral balance store page that shows how much weight the colored tip options can support, though. You can use that as reference.
